You know, I am beginning to wonder if this is a troll thread.
No reasonable person thinks or talks like this.

People can find a good balance between work, kids and interests but it might take some compromise. Of course things will change, but having kids isn't the end to your own interests and yourself as an individual. It wasn't for us anyway.
Once in a while makes you an infrequent attender. It sounds to me like this is has been a lifestyle. It can't continue to be once the baby is here. THAT changes everything. It'll be like moving out of the fraternity and going back to visit now and again. You're not really a member anymore.

I actually started thinking that several pages ago. This is the OP's very first post. And all the errors and wild punctuation...really looks like someone trying to get reactions.

I should probably stop feeding him.

I didn't feel right handing him off to someone else again, when I had been gone all day. His father and I both felt the same way about this. We adored our son, and we really enjoyed our time with him. We hated to give up even a few minutes at night. But everyone is different, of course. I had a good friend that left her baby with her mom when he was 2 weeks old so that she could go out with hubby. She was going stark raving mad staying home.
Same here. We did not use baby sitters when we were not working. I think dd was about 1 when we first had a sitter at night and that was for a wedding.

Given that children are required to be in booster seats at that age, is this even legal?

Leaving our kid with anyone else is on an as NEEDED basis only. Not as wanted to go out and carouse.
